Ondrej has been tied up finishing his PhD for the past several weeks. He is defending his work shortly and should be available to continue to help with the 1.7.0 release around the first of December. He and I have been in contact during this process, and I've been helping where I can. Fortunately, other NumPy developers have been active closing tickets and reviewing pull requests which has helped the process substantially.
The release has taken us longer than we expected, but I'm really glad that we've received the bug-reports and issues that we have seen because it will help the 1.7.0 release be a more stable series. Also, the merging of the Trac issues with Git has exposed over-looked problems as well and will hopefully encourage more Git-focused participation by users.
We are targeting getting the final release of 1.7.0 out by mid December (based on Ondrej's availability). But, I would like to find out which issues are seen as blockers by people on this list. I think most of the issues that I had as blockers have been resolved. If there are no more remaining blockers, then we may be able to accelerate the final release of 1.7.0 to just after Thanksgiving.
